Very addictive: Cocaine is extremly reinforcing, meaning in one sitting of drug use and if the drug is available many people will tend to use that whole amount until the supply is gone.

No: Not in the same sense as you would think of street drugs or some prescription pain medicines.

While not all professionals agree, one way of avoiding that that some take is a slow dose taper during drug discontinuation. ...Read more
Course of addiction : Typically drug addicts use drugs because of the way it makes them feel. Drugs of abuse are fast acting, hit the reward center of the brain and are thus reinforcing.

My boyfriend took an ecstacy pill once (1 small capsule, white form) last may and never again did. Is it the cause for his +paranoiaand bad behavior?
Ecstasy: What was actually in the pill your boyfriend thought was ecstasy, could have been mdma plus whatever the maker decided to put in there. Your boyfriend does not and cannot know.

No but yes....: Generally speaking, a woman is born with all of the eggs she's going to have. That means they are all exposed to everything she puts into her body, especially drugs. It has nothing to do with whether it is sequestered in her spinal fluid; it is doing its damage at the time she takes the drugs. This is one of the inherent dangers of taking drugs. ...Read more

Can a father's drug use during conception cause birth defects - for example cocaine, opioids, depressants, stimulants, LSD/Ecstacy?
Major drug abuse: A history of major drug abuse can cause damage to male reproductive health - but it would not be from a single use at the actual time of conception. I'd also think hard about the maturity and responsibility toward a potential child that you might expect from a man who abuses drugs enough to cause harm to his body.

Street drugs: We have no idea what's in 'ecstasy' at any given time. Ecstasy and molly are unregulated street drugs, meaning that really, anyone could be selling anything and pretending it's the drug. It could be rat poison. It could be vitamins. It could be soap. Ingesting unknown drugs casually has a very bad effect on the health and is an unwise approach to living a healthful life. ...Read more
